Serves 5

This is great way to get dinner ready in less than 20 minutes. It is also a great way to get a lot of veggies together in one dish.... The fact that I add tortellini to it makes it super easy to get my kids to eat it...


  • 2 carrots, cut into small cubes
  • 1 zucchini, cut into small cubes
  • 2 celery stalks, cut into small cubes
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 cup of butternut squash, cut into small cubes
  • 2-3 tbsp of pesto sauce
  • 1 bunch of kale, chopped
  • 6 cups of stock veggie or chicken, (store bought works great)
  • 1 pack of Spinach tortellini ( or whatever filling you like)
  • 3 tsp of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


Sauté the carrots, shallot and celery for 5 minutes on medium high, stirring once in a while. Add the zucchini and butternut squash and keep on cooking for another 3-4 minutes. This process with the veggies is gonna give it all its flavor so don't shortcut it.

Add the stock, pesto, broccoli, bring to a boil,  and simmer for 5 more minutes. Add the kale and tortellini and cook for 3 additional minutes.

Serve and sprinkle some parmesan or extra pesto on top and enjoy.
